Hello Jeff - No wonder Trump knows that there is going
to be an attack in Syria, we have missing Sarin Nerve Gas.
As to who will be releasing it on the citizens of Syria, it ain't going
to be Assad. Any guesses who? How about the US, ISIS
or Israel...the three Musketeers.
The article refers to tiny amount of Sarin missing. Yeah, well,
take a tiny amount from several labs and you have yourself a gas attack
that could kill thousands.
The timing of this report sure is fitting with the timing of Trump's proclamation
of an impending attack on Syria by the 'Syrian government.'
The missing chemical was likely due to (are you ready for this?)
Evaporaiton, my foot. Dugway has long been known for its place
in the biowar business. Oops, I mean 'defense'.
Why do we need to manufacture Sarin anyway if we are only involved in
defense? Why do we need the implements of chemical and biological
warfare? It will never end.
No wonder the Muslims have invaded the West. When they get elected
to our highest offices and they will, they will have their fingers on
the nuclear, biological and chemical components of mass destruction.
WE must NOT vote for any Muslims or Africans in local elections because
once they get in and they will - like the Mayor of London - they will
be on their way to Congress and the White House…and they will control
the WMD program.
So, I reiterate…the Sarin is not 'missing' it just 'evaporated' !
SARIN, LABORATORY ERRORS -
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE INVESTIGATION REPORT

The same Army laboratory that mishandled anthrax in 2015 leading to a
nationwide scare might also have lost a small amount of the chemical sarin,
the Pentagon's inspector general has found.
In a report released this month [June 2017], the inspector general for
the Department of Defense found officials at the Army's Dugway Proving
Ground in Utah and a contractor that facility was using to care for chemicals
did not properly inventory its sarin, a nerve agent that can be fatal
to humans if they come into contact with it.
Dugway stored its sarin in a 2-container system. The sarin was stored
in a primary container, which is then stored inside a secondary container.
But officials only checked the secondary containers when doing inventory
and did not check inside the primary container, so they did not know whether
all the sarin was still in the containers, the inspector general found.
"Therefore, custodians cannot identify and account for leaks, evaporation,
or theft that may have occurred," the inspector general found. "Furthermore,
Dugway officials did not immediately notify the chemical materials accountability
officer of a 1.5-milliliter shortage of...sarin identified during a 19
Apr 2016 inventory nor did they properly document the results of that
inventory," the investigation found.
Dugway and its contractor also used different methods to seal the containers,
the inspector general found.
"Dugway used stainless steel cylinders and ammunition cans sealed with
tamper evident seals; and the contractor used resealable plastic containers
sealed with tape, which provides no assurance that only authorized personnel
had access," the investigation found.
It would be difficult to tell whether sarin was removed from the facility
or it evaporated, due to the amount that was reported missing and how
it reacts with the environment, said Dan Kaszeta, a former Army chemical
weapons specialist and now the managing director of Strongpoint Security,
a chemical weapons consultancy based in the U.K.
"1.5 [milliliters] is actually rather a small amount," Kaszeta said. "Yes,
it could kill somebody, but sarin evaporates very quickly and also degrades
very quickly." It would not last long if it got out of one of the containment
jars, he said.
That amount is small enough that it could be within the margin of error
for measuring it, depending on what technique was used, Kaszeta said.
Bruce Anderson, a spokesman for the inspector general's office, said the
investigation recommended a new inventory of all the chemicals at Dugway
be completed to establish a new system to better track dangerous substances.
"We found conditions that increased the risk that chemical agent operations
are not conducted in a safe, secure and reliable manner," Anderson said.
"We believe that the Army should address the increased risk by quickly
implementing corrective actions."
Dugway is the same facility that was the source of a nationwide scare
in 2015 after it was reported the facility had inadvertently shipped hundreds
of samples of live anthrax to medical labs in all 50 states and 9 other
countries when the samples were supposed to be inactive. The top officer
at Dugway at the time, then-Colonel William King, was issued a career-ending
reprimand following the incident.
[Byline: Tara Copp]
[A milliliter is a very small amount and is likely due to evaporation.
However, this is the same lab that shipped out live anthrax samples to
diagnostic labs. Hence, there may be larger issues here than a tiny amount
of chemical missing (which is likely due to evaporation). The larger issue
here is the lack of uniformity in how the Army handles things, and how
a contractor handles things.
It seems there should have been a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in
place that specified some details such as:
-how often the levels of the chemicals should be checked, and was that
to include primary and secondary containers?
-what the canisters were to be sealed with?
-how many people should be on an inspection team?
-what are the procedures in the event of an exposure?
-where this information was to be noted and how often?
-what kind of tape for resealing the containers should be used?
-what kind of training and how often should the training be performed
and by whom?
-where is the documentation for that training kept?
There are likely other things the SOP should have contained, but from
this article, it appears there was a lack of:
-specificity regarding training and inspection
One wonders whether these things were spelled out for a contractor or
any other inspector of the containers?
This is the 2nd type of general failure at this facility the Inspector
General has investigated. These issues all need correcting. The correction
of these events is paramount to keeping people at the facility safe, as
well as the safety of lab personnel who may receive samples (such as the
anthrax samples), or the surrounding communities if a mishap were larger
than a few milliliters of a evaporated chemical.
If these things had been documented or tracked more closely if they were
known issues, then it would be a clearer situation to understand if the
tiny amount missing is from evaporation (which is likely) or from theft
or mishandling. - Mod.TG

Anthrax - USA (04): laboratory errors, GAO investigation report 20160929.4524933
PS - I have been searching the uses for Sarin other than as a
WMD. I have found NOT ONE SINGLE USE FOR SARIN OTHER THAN
KILLING PEOPLE AND ANIMALS.
So, why are we manufacturing it? Bet the farm that the next
attack on Syria will be Sarin. The last attack was Sarin when the US
blamed Assad for it.
My guess is the upcoming Trump-Bibi Netanyahu-ISIS attack will be
I thought the convention on WMD stated that Sarin could not be
Have you read the report? Amazing at the laxness involved in
the storing of Sarin and I am sure other chemicals.
I wonder if there are Muslims, i.e ISIS sympathizers working for the
Dugway contractors. Hell they could be in our Army already.
Sure, look at the Army Psychiatrist who did the mass shooting at Ft
Hood. This is also why I am against refugees and illegals
working in our food businesses and processing plants.
Do you know of any other uses for Sarin other than as a weapon to
kill people? I cannot find one in any of my searches.
Oh, by the way Dugway was the lab that sent live anthrax through the
mail to 50 States and 9 other countries. It was not just one
sample but hundreds of live anthrax samples went out. Criminal if
you ask me.
Sarin, or GB (G-series, 'B'), is a colorless, odorless
organophosphorus liquid, used as a chemical weapon due to its
extreme potency as a nerve agent. It can be lethal even at very low
concentrations, where death can occur within one to ten minutes
after direct inhalation of a lethal dose, due to suffocation
from lung muscle paralysis, unless antidotes are quickly
administered. People who absorb a non-lethal dose, but do not
receive immediate medical treatment, may suffer permanent
It is generally considered a weapon of mass destruction. Production
and stockpiling of sarin was outlawed as of April 1997 by the
Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, and it is classified as a
Schedule 1 substance. In June 1994, the UN Special Commission on
Iraqi disarmament destroyed the nerve agent sarin under Security
Council resolution 687 (1991) concerning the disposal of Iraq's
weapons of mass destruction.
